change america. you were in iowa with me all of the republicans that streamed through in early january 2008, they were so hopeful. they said this guy will be so different. he's not a crazy left winger, not a product of the '60s. that's why he won iowa. in fact, that's why he won in 2008. we saw with the stimulus bill, with cap and trade, health care reform, every step of the way, mika, he chose to take nancy pelosi's approach, and henry waxman's approach, and barney frank's approach instead of iowa's approach and this is where it landed him. >> tell us a little bit, given what joe was saying, we hear from the white house one thing, but i was reading tweets all night long. give us a sense of what you're hearing on the ground in terms of how people feel. not only in terms of the direction of the administration, but why they vote for scott brown. >> massachusetts, arguably the most democratic state in this country, don't want someone who is beholden to a party. and how you govern like that and pass legislation, i don't know, because as a party you have to come together on issues and make
